A lot of customers are asking for sport coats that will be appropriate for their “dressier business casual” meetings…but be adaptable for an edgy weekend casual look. The next few weeks, I’ll take my favorite sport coats and do just that!
This sport coat outfit was designed for one of my NCAA Coaches who asked for a sport coat that he could wear for recruiting purposes. Something that was dressy…but not overpowering. I gave the garment a little extra character by choosing a brighter, Bemberg fabric lining. The 5-fold, hand-made paisley tie works great with the mini-check pattern of the jacket. A “non-solid/solid”, micro-check shirt was used as the backdrop. For a pant, I chose the always appropriate black all-season gabardines…the pant everyone needs!
k This customer also wanted his sport coat to be able to double as one of his “go-to” outfits for weekend casual dinners with his wife. I took the same sport coat and paired it with a very cool navy dotted stripe shirt, toned down the buttons and buttonholes of the shirt to create a monochromatic shirt look, and finished the look off with a super-comfortable Barberis stretch cotton fabric pant in a medium blue. The pant was styled in a 5-pocket jean style.
